You may or may not be interested but for those who are:

http://hunterradio.com/mp3/jack_o_roses/index.html
(Includes "Terrapin" with additional sections not covered by Jerry.)

Home page:

(this will get you to his on-line journal)

Index for other items on his site is:

There's probably something for everybody there if you are willing to poke around. Just an example are the original handwritten lyrics to a few classics:

Be well, -- AshesRising

Been hiding right in front of my face. I read, or at least check Hunter's Journal daily, have that page in my favorites, so I don't see his Homepage often...Dooohhhh! Stupid brain!!! I've been looking for Jack O Roses forever. I'd still rather have cd or at least a copy of it! Has it even been released on cd? mp3 is better than no p3 or an old cassette and no cassette player

Thank you for the link, it's a Thanksgiving Miracle!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey "cush212:" - don't get down on youself - it's a rugged web-site to get around --probably intentional -- however there are diamonds in the rough so that's why I put the links to give the brethren a little direction.

"Jack" was released as an LP (1980), however it was difficult to find - not sure if it was released as a CD. His LP's were remastered and re-released around 1988, however I prefer the LP sound much better - even burned to a CD.

Send me an email when you have the time. -- AshesRising

William Tell: First, thank you very much for all the value you have brought to the Forum -- it's much appreciated and I know I'm not just speaking for myself.

I will send you an email that you can forward to your son regarding Hunter items (music and written materials) that he may or may not know about. --- AshesRising

I appreciate that as well; not sure how many of the rest of you rec'd his initial release in 74, when the boys started their record company, but I kept that little 45 sized disk for years til it wore out. "Dry dusty road, dry dusty road, brother won't you carry me down this dry dusty road" was a refrain, I think, that stuck with me...

Nothing but him singing and a guitar.

...that's a fantastic tune! The guitarist is Barry Melton of "Country Joe and the Fish" fame.

Melton started another group in the eighties called "Dinosaurs" with an all-star cast of musicians (Cippolina, Spencer Dryden and lots of guest appearances by the most of the great SF musicians) (Hunter even played with them for a while) -- some of the Dinosaurs shows are here in the Forum with a few written by Hunter but never played by the Grateful Dead.

If you like "Dry Dusty Road" then you would really like "Yellow Moon" as well - Jerry on acoustic; the album version is their first take in the studio - amazing. - Ashes

Had no idea--great stuff. Part of my early era bias is due to Hunter--I think (totally subjective, I know) that his early writing is his best. My son is quite the student of all manner of poets, and he really got me into to some compilations of his material...67 to 71 is really good.
